Klimchak is a man of few names and many talents. In 2009, he was awarded the Loridans Arts Award, a $15,000 cash prize often called "Atlanta's MacArthur Genius Award." His sonic artwork has been heard in solo concerts, performance art pieces, and scores for theater, dance & film.
Combining a sense of whimsy with the playing skills of a master multi-instrumentalist, his concerts are filled with surprises & crazy home-made instruments played with even crazier techniques. An amplified bowl of water becomes a drum and a drum becomes an amplifier for cowbells made from liquor flasks.
Klimchak's last performance art project was performed at the Goat Farm Arts Center in Atlanta. CookNptes is a performance art cooking show, funded by grants from Idea Capital & the Atlanta Mayor's Office of Cultural Affairs. He built instruments out of kitchen equipment & wrote music for them. Klimchak performed that music live, WHILE cooking food on the instruments. At the end of the concert, there was a complete meal for the audience to eat.
In the last year, live performances include playing theremin. moog minitaur, & a set of tuned circular saw blades for Shakespeare's As You Like It for Theater Emory, Theremin Bike in the Little 5 Points Arts Alive Festival, & a modified kitchen sink with electronics for the Art in Odd Places Festival in Orlando. He's currently composing music for a quasi-opera, The Followers, to be performed at 7 Stages Theater in 2018.
